I’ve been enjoying Parenthood thus far, but wasn’t sure how true the portrayal of the kid with Asperger’s Syndrome was, so I asked a friend of mine who has kids with Asperger’s to watch it so I could get her opinion. This is it.
Dude, I don’t know what show you’ve been watching, but that first episode of Parenthood was a big cheesy can of crap.
They took the cast of a couple different 90s sitcoms, mashed them together, and spat out a painfully cliche script that even the actors looked pained to read through.
I haven’t watched Parenthood, but as an Aspie I loved what that mother wrote on her blog. It’s such a relief to see parents who love and respect their autistic kids instead of bemoaning how broken they are.
